The Weimar Wildcat baseball rosters boast a full varsity lineup as well as a full JV lineup. The Wildcats are currently ranked No. 3 by the Texas High School Coaches Association and No. 5 by Texas High School Baseball. The Cats currently sit at 9-3-1 and 1-0 in district play with a convincing win of 11-1 over district competitor Ganado. Prior to district play the Cats competed in the Columbus, Burton, and Weimar baseball tournaments, as well as the home opener with tradition-rich Thorndale. Columbus had no official bracket play and was set up for round robin play due to inclement weather and field conditions. The season opener finished in an 8-2 win, which was highlighted by stellar plays offensively, defensively, as well as some overall great pitching. Offensive play was led by senior Trenton Chenard, juniors Jagger Fishbeck, Hunter Price, and sophomores Hudson Ervin and Brady Henke. The group went a combined 10-19 on hits that evening, scoring 7 of the 8 runs combined. The night’s RBI leader was Jagger Fishbeck with three. Pitching saw Hunter Price and Brady Henke take the mound and keep the Thorndale ball clubs to just two runs. The young duo combined for six strikeouts in the seven innings of play, and allowed for Henke to record his first save of the year. The Cats fell behind early 1-2 and rallied in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to close the door on the Bulldogs.
